Description du produit
The Last Minute is a crazy quasi-autobiographical story about the way mediocre people in your life get in the way of your dreams and ambitions. Director Stephen Norrington (Blade) has used the film to launch a blistering assault on the madness of art, fame and celebrity, creating a new kind of genre that fuses together reality TV with sci-fi and the London crime movie with a hint of something a little Dickensian. The Last Minute is a surreal TV sci-fi crime movie set in a Dickensian 21st century where the most important thing in the world is to be famous. If you fail at fame, youre done for. Max Beesley (himself no stranger to the celebrity lists), plays Billy Byrne, who, as some kind of pop artist, a next big thing with the world at his feet, plummets chaotically from would-be A-list celebrity down to something like the ZZ-list.
Running Time: 109 minutes.
Billy Byrne est en train de vivre son quart d'heure de gloire : il fait la couverture des magazines, les fans hurlent sur son passage et la jet set l'idôlatre. Mais quinze minutes, c'est court. A la seizième minute, c'est la chute ! Sa descente aux enfers l'emmène tout droit dans les bas-fonds londoniens dominés par la pègre. Un monde finalement aussi dangereux et pas si différent que celui qu'il vient de quitter... --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

But the second half was quite terrific! I absolutely liked the "Oliver Twist"-kind-a-like storyline. And since I only purchased this movie because of director Stephen Norrington, I wasn't disappointed at all.
When it comes to the dvd itself, I only DEEPLY have to complain about one thing: there are no subtitles available whatsoever! Since I'm German and quiet fluently in the American English language, I really had a VERY HARD TIME getting all the British accents and dialogues straight. It almost made my head spin!
But still worth an experience.
The story is fantastical; just watching it is like being shot through a blow-dart gun of fantasy, but the gun's real. Wonderfully manipulative direction, I can't compare this movie to any other because it would be just that: a comparison, and there is no point in comparing a unique film with another.
The writer manages to convey a message of the unreality of reality. His colors are brilliant, his music sharper than glass, and the sounds of this spooky little world actually have texture.
This man has really beat the living hell out his peers. His grasp of satire and story-telling is far more mature than it should be for his age. It's an overwhelming film and often difficult to watch; there is so much emotion happening. It's funny, it's sad, it's maddening, it's frustrating.
It's just a gorgeously decadent film and I wish we were allowed to cuss on these reviews because I cannot say enough how good this movie is. Buy this movie. Get the unrated version. Watch it a hundred times. Learn from it. Learn from him.
After being lobotomized by this beautifully horrible world that's been created, you'll at the very least be left with one thing: Stephen Norrington's un-paralled combination of stunning visuals and music as a technique of story-telling after there are no more words left to say.
I'm not a fan of avant-garde anything, but I quite enjoyed the dark vision of this camera verity/music video-style movie. The cast is excellent with standout performances from Max Beesley as Billy, Jason Isaacs as Dave "Percy" Sledge, the singer/drug dealer, and Tom Bell as Grimshanks, the Fagin-like drug dealer/failed actor. The ickiest moments for me in this film were when Max is invited to Club Prosthesis, a kinky underground fetish club. The whole "medical procedure" theme made my skin crawl. The discovery of what was behind the closed door in the club was (frankly) funny and oddly charming by comparison. By far the best moments of the movie were the "musical interludes" by Percy Sledge, a psychotic killer, who alternates between homicidal rages and crooning like Frank Sinatra. It sounds bizarre, but the two "music video" moments actually blend in seamlessly to the whole movie.
The only drawback to this movie was a technical problem with the DVD itself. On the copy I had, the cursor tended to blend in so well with the background of several pages including the opening page that I had to guess as to its location. As a result, I doubt that I found all of the extra features on this DVD. As a side note, be sure to watch the movie all the way through the end credits as there are extra character scenes stuck in this last sequence.
While the overall tone of the movie is dark and gritty, the ending is uplifting and hopeful. "The Last Minute" is really a meditation on art, commercialism, and what it means to be an artist. I highly recommend this flick.
